Good evening, I'm David Allard with the news in the south.

:00:09.:00:11.

Royal Navy divers were called in tonight, to deal with another

:00:12.:00:14.

World War Two bomb that was dredged up off Southsea.

:00:15.:00:16.

It was in the main shipping channel, a mile from the Portsmouth harbour

:00:17.:00:20.

entrance, and 400 metres off shore from the Blue Reef Aquarium.

:00:21.:00:24.

Brittany Ferry services in and out of Portsmouth

:00:25.:00:29.

were held for two hours until the device was found

:00:30.:00:32.

Police in Southampton have tonight named a man found

:00:33.:00:37.

He was 21-year-old Shkelzen Dauti, known as Genny, who was

:00:38.:00:43.

He was found on Gilpin Close, in the Thornhill area,

:00:44.:00:49.

early yesterday morning, and died in hospital.

:00:50.:00:51.

Police are appealing for anyone with information

:00:52.:00:53.

That's the feeling of traders in Hungerford,

:00:54.:01:01.

over what appears to be a new police policy on shoplifting.

:01:02.:01:04.

It's after a council meeting was told police officers wouldn't

:01:05.:01:06.

routinely attend incidents, where less than ?100

:01:07.:01:09.

Police are now trying to reassure businesses,

:01:10.:01:13.

It was here at Hungerford Town Hall that councillors were told that

:01:14.:01:19.

under a so-called new delivery model, police would no longer turn

:01:20.:01:22.

particularly those of goods worth less than ?100.

:01:23.:01:28.

I think it was a bit of a shock, obviously.

:01:29.:01:31.

There are a number of smaller retailers I know

:01:32.:01:36.

that are not on the breadline but they struggle from time to time and

:01:37.:01:40.

?90 worth of stuff stolen from a shop could well

:01:41.:01:43.

Hungerford has a host of independent traders.

:01:44.:01:49.

The owner of this antiques arcade was concerned to hear he may

:01:50.:01:52.

not get help dealing with a shoplifting incident.

:01:53.:01:55.

If the police are not going to come out for anything under ?100,

:01:56.:01:58.

if we do have somebody, how do I handle it?

:01:59.:02:02.

Do I hold onto him and then phone the police or do I take him down

:02:03.:02:06.

to the police station or what do I do?

:02:07.:02:09.

It is very grey so that is the reason I was surprised

:02:10.:02:12.

Hungerford lost its police station over a year ago

:02:13.:02:16.

so there were already fears about a lack of police presence.

:02:17.:02:19.

Now the Thames Valley Police and Crime Commissioner says

:02:20.:02:22.

he will raise the comment about shoplifting policy

:02:23.:02:24.

If we didn't investigate shoplifting up to ?100,

:02:25.:02:29.

If people shoplift and nobody does anything about it,

:02:30.:02:34.

So I totally disagree with that comment and I will be taking it up

:02:35.:02:41.

But I'm sure that was not the intention.

:02:42.:02:44.

Thames Valley Police have now tried to reassure the town council

:02:45.:02:46.

They say that the reference to ?100 was arbitrary and does not

:02:47.:02:52.

But they go on to say that clearly police attendance at incidents

:02:53.:02:58.

is prioritised according to the prevailing threat or harm

:02:59.:03:01.

to people and property and the associated risks.

:03:02.:03:05.

They also say any suitable lines of inquiry will be pursued.

:03:06.:03:12.

A man's been arrested following a fire on the roof of Guys Marsh

:03:13.:03:15.

64 inmates had to be moved to safety after the fire broke out

:03:16.:03:20.

Dorset Police say a 29-year-old male prisoner is being questioned

:03:21.:03:26.

on suspicion of arson with intent to endanger life.

:03:27.:03:29.

Southern Rail services will be disrupted tomorrow as members

:03:30.:03:31.

of the RMT union go on strike for a 30th day.

:03:32.:03:36.

They're in dispute over changes to the role of guards,

:03:37.:03:39.

and the move to make drivers responsible for

:03:40.:03:41.

Southern says it's aiming to run 90% of services.

:03:42.:03:47.

The first of more than 100 wind turbines has been installed

:03:48.:03:50.

this weekend eight miles off the Sussex coast.

:03:51.:03:52.

Work is continuing night and day to construct the Rampion

:03:53.:03:55.

offshore wind farm, which will provide electricity

:03:56.:03:59.

for more than 340,000 homes from next year.

:04:00.:04:01.

More on that in tomorrow's programme.

:04:02.:04:05.

Time for the weather with Holly Green.

:04:06.:04:08.

After a cloudy day it is looking clearer tonight, so starry

:04:09.:04:15.

skies overhead and it could turn quite chilly.

:04:16.:04:17.

A touch of frost is a possibility here and there tonight.

:04:18.:04:19.

But typical temperatures will be around four or 5 degrees.

:04:20.:04:23.

Lots of sunshine around tomorrow a little cloud coming

:04:24.:04:28.

in from the north-west as the afternoon goes on.

:04:29.:04:30.

But dry and mild, and feeling warm, 14 or 15 degrees or perhaps higher.

:04:31.:04:35.

Cloudy skies roll in for Tuesday and Wednesday, a little damp

:04:36.:04:40.

Our next updates are in BBC Breakfast.

:04:41.:04:49.

But from all of us here, have a good night.

:04:50.:05:07.

Good evening. For many places it was a fairly cloudy day on suspend but

:05:08.:05:13.

there was sunshine for western areas during the afternoon, and here are

:05:14.:05:19.

the clear skies at sunset in Northern Ireland. Thanks to

:05:20.:05:20.
